    I graduated May 16th. Im waiting for my ATT from CA BON. Anyone already get one from Cali that graduation same time frame? Im wondering how long it will take. Im hoping to take my test by third week of June.
    When you call CA BON they tell you it takes 6-8 weeks for processing your app. after they receive it. Then you get an approval packet in the mail. Then you call and pay the $200 fee. Then you get your ATT...via email usually 1-2 days after you pay. If you dont receive it within a week then call CA BON...They had my bday wrong...and i waited over 2 weeks before calling.
    If in doubt, give them a call. It takes abot 20min to get through but they are very nice and helpful.

    Hi everybody - I'm definitely going to test in June just haven't rec'd ATT yet. I was using NCSBN, Saunders then started reading Hurst RN review book - small book about strategy mostly that was recommended to me by someone who passed 1st time with 75 questions and ONLY used that book. Here's my question - I know Kaplan teaches alot of strategy so I didn't do the review course at school but the question bank gets ALOT of positive comments on this forum and I'm considering paying for the question bank to do those these last 2-3 wks before testing. Any insight from anyone on this is appreciated!!!!!!!!! Good LUCK to all!

    well i was in the may 2009 nclex support group but I decided to re schedule my exam on june 3rd. This will be my second time. But I feel that I am not motivated anymore, I guess I drained my brain last week from studying 8 hours a day even though I get a lot of breaks. I am trying to finish my hurst review content. ...

    Please pray for me. Thanks!

    I sent my app back in February, so everything is done (background checks, etc...), they are just waiting on my transcripts (I called them today). It seems very slow. Some previous school transcripts were sent April 15th and they are still not appearing in my file. I just hope its not July before I get my ATT. I need to start working. Not to mention waiting for results....*SIGH*

    well, we have the same boat...I'm having difficulty with meds and calculations too. I swear... I haet calculations! The meds, ... i hate to memorize....!

    I guess, we just have to be positive. The Lord will make a way. If its not our time to be an RN just believe in the Lord and He will make a way! kEEP ON PRAYING!

    Hi! Yes God is good and He ordered our steps and walked up the nursing school so He WILL get us through the NCLEX! I do know He expects us to do our part (as I know you understand too)! So I'd like to comment on the math and on the meds - the math I believe will for the most part be basic I&O and IV drip formulas etc - not too horrid really and probably not ALOT of these. Meds -NCLEX "should" really focus on the common meds that we do know something about AND on meds that could kill someone in quick order if administered improperly - i.e. Heparin. I think it's important to study Adult Med Surg MORE than anything. Peds and OB - a few things on there that would be life threatening especially but not alot - these are just my opinions for what they're worth AND in spending many hours reading different threads and posts in the last few months on this AWESOME forum. Safety, infection control and NOT killing our patient - that is my focus in studying.

    I bought a book by Marlene Hurst for NCLEX RN and I really like it. I already have Saunders, Kaplan, Lippincott books and this new book is by FAR my favorite. A gal told me she read it beginning to end and passed in 75 questions -cool right? I am still considering purchasing the Kaplan test bank questions but WOW pricey! WHY in the world don't they allow us say 3 wks of accessing it for a discounted price - GREED that's why! sorry...

    Good LUCK to all (living under Christ's keeping - my favorite acronym)!
